Limber up your tongue (and mind!)

Mr JJ Drinkwater announces the Great Mark Twain Cussoff

The Library of Caledon has joined forces with several other august bodies to sponsor this literary event of the highest merit, suitable for persons of refined sensibilities, from all parts of the 19th century and literary grid: a contest in the art of expression, to wit, unburdening oneself of an excess of sentiment with high-flown phrase and well-aimed epithet, in the manner of a character out of the works penned by Mr. Samuel Clemens, more familiarly Mark Twain.
